Royal expert Ingrid Seward has stated Meghan Markle she struggled to understand the royal line of succession, which left her husband of less importance than other family members. The commentator said the Duchess failed to cope with the fact that Prince William, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and their three children were more important.
Mrs. Seward wrote in the Sun: “The only modern prince who really cares where he is on the list is probably Harry.
“It is not because he cares about himself.
“But his wife Meghan couldn’t understand why, when she married the second son of the future king, they were so much less important than William and Kate and their tribe of children.”
The British line of succession is the sequence of members of the Royal Family in the order in which they are placed in line for the throne.
The lineage is regulated by descent and parliamentary statute.
Prince Charles, 72, is currently first in line to the throne, as he is the queen’s eldest son.
Then comes 38-year-old Prince William, as he is the first-born of the Prince of Wales.
The duke’s three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, two, then follow.
The Law of Succession to the Crown was applied to those born after October 28, 2011 and allowed Princess Charlotte to rank fourth in line to the throne, ahead of her younger brother, Prince Louis.
But since the amendment only affected those born after October 2011, other female members of the Royal Family lagged behind their younger siblings.
For example, Princess Anne, 70, is much further down the line, even behind her younger brother, Prince Edward, 56.
The Queen’s only daughter is ranked 15th in line to the throne, while the Earl of Wessex ranks 12th, due to the arrival of Princess Eugenie’s baby earlier this week.
Buckingham Palace announced the news of Princess Eugenie’s son on Tuesday, saying in a statement: “Her Royal Highness, Princess Eugenie, safely delivered a son today, February 9, 2021, at 08: 55 hours at Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present. The baby weighs 8 lbs. 1 oz.
“The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York, Sarah, the Duchess of York and Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.
This is the first child of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, the Duke of York and Sarah, the first grandchild of the Duchess of York and the ninth great-grandchild of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness and his son are doing well. “
